Sabbath Keeping

"It is God alone who judges
He decides who will rise
and who will fall."

Self confidence has limited potential
God confidence has unlimited possibility.
~ Renee Swope ~

"Confidence is not based on you having all the resources you need to take care of yourself; confidence is based upon the truth that God is faithful."

"Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand
at the time." ~ Oswald Chambers ~


"The most beautiful women I've ever observed are those who have exchanged a self-focused life for a Christ focused one. They are confident, but not in themselves, instead of confidence they radiate with Christ confidence." ~ Leslie Ludy ~

"God sometimes takes us into troubled waters...
not to drown us, but to cleanse us."

"Doubt is a lack of confidence or assurance that God will keep His promises. Faith is an active confidence that God's promises are always true." ~ James MacDonald ~

"Unshakable confidence is not built on someone, something or someplace
but on our unshakable God." ~ Lynn Cowell ~

"Every doubt, every fear is a crime against God."

"Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.
For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God,
you may receive the promise."
~ Hebrews 10:35-36 ~

Please pray for our great country, the USA. This Presidential election is the most important in my lifetime of 60+ years! Keep in mind whoever wins the November Presidential election will determine the direction this country will take FOR GENERATIONS TO COME. The next President will be in a position to put conservative, even Godly men or women on the Supreme Court. If you want your children and your children's children children to live in a country that was founded and based on Judeo Christian values, vote for the one who promised to put conservative, pro-life judges in the Supreme Court.


  1. Always glad to read these posts. I thought of you and quoted you today actually...."practicing my faith until I have faith." It's a battle, but one that makes so much sense and I can win. The world is happy to fill us with happy thoughts, but the Truth is so much better.
    "Confidence is not based on you having all the resources you need to take care of yourself; confidence is based upon the truth that God is faithful." Prayers across the miles...

  2. Amen - Lord, have mercy!

    (I have confidence that you will use that rope to a good purpose.)

  3. This was great!

    Have a good week dear Sandra ~ FlowerLady

  4. Love Oswald Chambers.

  5. God bless you for your wonderful Sunday posts. I don't get ot blogland often enough these days. Blessings to you- xo Diana

  6. Sandy, I feel he is counting the days till I get that last call.
    God Bless you

  7. Sandra, can I ask you to please add my friend KB and her loved ones to your prayer list? They were evacuated from their home on Saturday due to the Cold Springs Fire in the mountains above Boulder, CO (my old stomping grounds) and I'm just heartsick about the whole situation - bad and getting worse. Thank you.

  8. I love each single quote so very much! They all fit perfect to my thoughts and experiences. Wonderful! Thank you for finding these sentences with the help of the Lord!

    Greetings and best wishes for your country and for us all!

  9. Wonderful quotes....I especially love the one about how God takes us into "troubled waters not to drown, but to cleanse." How true. How completely true. Therefore as a believer, I must constantly change my perspective because one thing I do know; He LOVES US and only wants the best so we can grow.

    Thank you for coming to visit me!
